World's Fastest Fiero? 383 Stroker V-8 Supercharged with Performance Cam, Headers, Tuned, Etc.
http://LamboReplicaForSale.com | 500+ horsepower, supercharged 383 Stroker V8 Pontiac Fiero monster! I picked up this new "toy" on Ebay for $4,000. The guy that sold it to me warned me that it is "dangerously fast." After driving it one time, I agree. This car is scary to drive! I'm planning to build a Lamborghini replica using this as the donor. It may be the fastest Lambo





Flywheel Hybrid Technology
Torotrak is a UK-based company that's developing a technology called a flywheel hybrid. Instead of using a big, heavy battery to store energy, the Torotrak system uses a spinning flywheel. It's simple and lightweight compared to traditional electric hybrids, and it's even going to be used in Formula One race cars. There's no word yet if any automakers are signing up, but if it starts winning races you can bet they'll be all over it.

How Diff Lock Works and When To Use It (UK Terminology, Land Rover)
This video instructs the viewer on how the standard *CENTRE* "diff lock" works in a permanent 4 wheel drive (4x4) vehicle, a Land Rover in this case, and gives an idea for how and when to use it. A Land Rover Discovery was the vehicle featured in the demonstrations, but this video applies to any 4x4 vehicle with a center diff lock. In summary, diff lock (whether it be the centre diff lock fitted as standard or front/rear aftermarket diff lock) is useful in slippery situations such as snow, ice and mud.
